The St. Tammany Parish School Board announced a new re-entry plan for the academic school year that has been affected by coronavirus.

Students in Pre-K through 5th grade will go to school in person ever day and students in 6th through 12th will go into school two days a week and every other Friday.

The start date of school could be pushed back until after Labor Day if the school board votes to delay. School was scheduled for a staggered start on Aug. 11.

“We understand families and employees want to know what to expect when the school year begins, and we have been working in frequent communication with representatives from a variety of health and government organizations to get answers for them and to ensure we have the proper safety protocols and procedures in place for the beginning of the school year,” said Interim Superintendent Pete Jabbia.

There was some concern by board members at the Wednesday meeting that equipment needed for distance learning might not be available by opening day.

All STPPS parents and caregivers will be asked to complete a bus transportation questionnaire to help in planning bus routes and logistics. The questionnaire will be available on the district website at

and will be open through Friday, July 31, 2020.
